World's Largest Skate Park.

Betcha didn't know that the world's most populous country has just built the world's largest skatepark:

That may sound like a fantasy, but that's exactly what happened in New Jiangwan, China, right outside of Shanghai. The city wanted to have a progressive park, and the Australian design firm Convic went to work constructing the new SMP park. The word "massive" describes the place perfectly, but in more than one way. There are so many different areas to ride that it's roughly the equivalent of six or seven parks, and that doesn't even include the vert ramp! And as for the size of the bowls, there are some good five and six-footers, but there are also 17-foot deep monsters, a massive fullpipe, handlebar-high ledges, and so much more. If you were to crash and get hurt in some of the bowls, you'd have a bad day trying to get yourself back to the deck, but I guess that's just motivation not to crash.
